How to Save a Cisco 3560 Switch Configuration
Cisco Catalyst switches can be configured using a number of different utilities. The most
common way to configure a Cisco Catalyst switch, such as the Catalyst 3560, is using
the command line interface (CLI) provided with the switch. When typing configuration
commands into the switch, all configurations are held in active memory on the switch, but
are not saved to the startup configuration until the command to save the configuration to
flash is issued.
1 Click the Windows icon in the lower left corner of the desktop, then click “Programs”
and click “Accessories.” Right-click the command line icon in the menu that appears, and
then click “Run as Administrator.” The command line window will appear.
2 Type “telnet x.x.x.x” on the command prompt, replacing the “x.x.x.x” with the IP address
of the Cisco Catalyst 3560 switch, and then press "Enter.”

memory of the Cisco 3560X switch.
